The course provides a basic knowledge of the area and helps you get started with the design work in SolidWorks.
We go through basic features so you can create simpler objects on your own and start exploring SolidWorks and its capabilities on your own. Production of production data such as drawings and how files are exported for CAM production will also be reviewed.

To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.

However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.

There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
